Hi Guys-

I just wanted to thank you guys for all your support and well wishes. You have no idea how much your friendship means to Dire. It took alot for him to come to this decision, please keep your prayers coming, will try to keep you posted.

thanks again.

oh and tito- a little self reflection wouldn't hurt you either. maybe even grow up a tad. I think maybe who isn't human here........just a thought

Diane, nice to "meet" you. Thanks for the update on Don. Tell the "Masshole" the southern English major is pullin' for him. Check the thread at DH, there's a lot of support for him there too. Positive thoughts, healing vibes and prayers for you Don. We'll leave the light on for you, and we'll share a cup o' joe when you're ready.

Not much I can add to what's been said above. We've come and gone with the four winds but Dire is a true pillar here.

Again, prayers and all the best to you guys.

Absolutely; what Wharf & High Flow said. It may seem sad, or even pathetic, but believe or not, a bunch of strange people he met on the web actually care a great deal about him.

Thanks for letting us know...

You both hang in there.

I don't post very often, never had a direct exchange with you Dire, but I wish you well. It's scary, but you'll make it through. Alcoholism doesn't run in my family--it gallops, as the saying goes. I never, NEVER thought I would quit drinking. When it came down to either quit or lose everything, I went in. Man, I thought I'd never have fun again, not to mention getting any work done. Like most people, I was quite a functional alcoholic for a long time. I had won awards for things I'd written while drinking, primarily because I never wrote anything without drinking. In rehab, I received word that I'd gotten a gig with a literary journal, beating out a dozen other applicants. I was thrilled, until I remembered that I'd done the editorial commentary that got me hired while half-crocked. After that, I was terrified. How the fuck was I going to pull it off straight? What about my "edge?" (By the way, having no edge on here is a conscious choice; I used to be a vicious, flame-throwing bastard on forums, but made a point to cut it out. Unnecessary stress, at least for me).

I "couldn't imagine life without drinking," yep. That's a cliche for a reason; it's how everybody feels (and get used to cliches, you'll be hearing plenty). Well man, let me tell you, that life is out there. BELIEVE THAT. No shit. You'll have fun, you'll get things done, sure it takes time, but you'll do it. Yourself and the folks who love you are worth the effort.

I sincerely wish you all the best.

- Brett

Hey Diane, we are all here for Don. He is a true friend and a good soul.

Don't bother wasting your breath on Tito.

Hi Diane, Tito is too busy with his hand puppets and favorite snack food to really care about anything but his next stain on grandma's afgan.

Will you be buzy while dire is standing in the mirror. If not, we should do lunch.

Good Luck again Dire.

If you believe in yin-yang, equal and opposite reactions...then you know idiots like this are a necessary part of life. Ignore toadsmoker....he has no penis, er wenis.

Thanks for writing, Diane. It's nice to know he's in good hands. I regard Don as one of our 'tribal elders' and the forum will miss him while he's away. I know how tough it will be so tell him we'll pump the healing vibe volume to 11 so he knows we're with him.

I'll say it again - why not just make 10 higher?
